Reflexive Mapping of Homelessness Services

The Launch of the Smile4life Reflexive Mapping Exercise (RME) of services and organisations working with the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless across Dundee. 

Scottish public policy on health and social care integration promotes coordinated access to supportive services for vulnerable people. The Smile4life RME is a mapping of existing and available services under eight areas of support. Using this collaborative and multi-agency approach, the Smile4life RME helps all practitioners create clear referral pathways for their clients. This document will increase accessibility and strengthen engagement with people who have multiple and complex needs and provide a wide range of available supportive services.
